Are you loving your toddler one moment and at your wit’s end the next? Toddlers are in the process of learning to regulate their bodies and emotions, and you, their Mommy and Daddy!
You have been warned to expect the Terrible Twos, and they have arrived! You will be tested as a couple and as a team on your patience and consistency. Remembering your child is precious even when you are greeted with NO . . .
You may struggle with feeling powerless or embarrassed when this happens at home, in front of strangers in public places, or with family and friends. These are moments when you may long for the days when your child was a baby in a crib or in a swing, and stayed in one place.
Toddlers can be a lot of fun; curious, discovering new things and taking delight in their new-found abilities. You may have feelings of ambivalence as your child develops, wishing you could fast-forward at times or hit the pause button, to stop time.
